After the last trip having to stop at night to sleep, I could now ride all the way. My longest distance nonstop now stands at 660km and really painless, nice! it’s getting somewhere. From Venray the route went through Zeeland along the coast up to Enkhuizen and back on the Veluwe.
At night we found 2 randonneurs at a gas station, they were too excited to ride ahead and now were completely broken, Richard was asleep somewhere and Jan had just thrown up and was miserable. We decided to take them with us and adjust our speed.
In the dark we crossed the Houtribdijk, and I waited for two stragglers, when they didn’t turn up, I rode back to our group,and found three riders peacefull asleep in the grass, that was the first time I saw something like this, funny to see! We awoke them and tried to keep the rest of our group together for the last 180km.
All together a wonderful trip with a great weather.
